Bobbi Kristina Brown’s family is clearing up rumours about their daughter’s health. The 21-year-old, who has been in a coma since Saturday, was reported to be brain dead after being discovered unresponsive in a bath tub, but the family has since denied these reports.
Fox News said on Wednesday that Bobbi was not doing well in hospital, and it had become a matter of “when the family wants to let go.”
However a new statement released by Bobbi’s family denied that they were gathering to say their goodbyes to the budding singer on Thursday.
“ There is no ‘family gathering’ today that is any different from any other day since (Bobbi Kristina) has been in the hospital – the family has been there since the weekend, so nothing any different today for them to be there than any other day.
“She is not brain dead, and the Houstons and the Browns are not fighting,” the statement read.
Bobbi Kristina Brown’s family have visited her every day since she was taken into hospital on Saturday, and her father Bobby Brown is said to be devastated by his daughter’s condition.
The rapper, who turned 46 on Thursday, has released a series of statements requesting privacy for his daughter, whose mother is the late singer Whitney Houston.
In a statement released through his lawyer, Christopher Brown, Bobby said: “We are currently investigating the events that led to the hospitalisation of Bobbi Kristina. To correct earlier reports, Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon.”
On Thursday it also emerged that Nick was not the person to discover Bobbi Kristina at their Atlanta home, as previously reported. According to a lawyer, the 21-year-old was found by her close friend Maxwell Lomas while Nick was elsewhere in the house.
Speaking with regard to the police report about the course of action taken between the discovery of Bobbi and her being taken to hospital, lawyer Philip Holloway said that while both men were listed as being in her Atlanta house, it was 24-year-old Maxwell who discovered her in the bathroom and attempted to resuscitate her.
“He immediately pulled her from the water and called 911 as well as alerting other people in the house,” he said. “He did whatever he could do to assist in resuscitative measures until first responders arrived.
“He remains in the Metropolitan Atlanta area and has been questioned by police as have many other people.”
